Porter's obituary in the Poughkeepsie Journal lists bingo and crossword puzzles as hobbies of hers.
"We in Campus Dining were sad to hear of the death of Kathryn Porter," says Maureen King, Senior Director of Campus Dining, in an exclusive statement to Mads. "Kathryn loved her job and her interaction with the students. She was fond of the nickname the students gave her. She will be missed."
Porter was known for being a tough cookie in her role as cashier, but she never let anyone leave her station without wishing them to "Have a good."
Porter is the second Vassar icon to pass away this school year, following beloved former security guard Betty Francis in December.
